2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the chicken

  • Place 1 or 2 chicken pieces at a time on a large piece of plastic wrap or waxed paper and sprinkle the meat with a few drops of water. Cover with another piece of plastic wrap or waxed paper and pound with a rolling pin or heavy frying pan to flatten to an even thickness of about ½ inch. Remove the plastic wrap or waxed paper, transfer the chicken to a plate, pat dry with a paper towel, and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Coat the chicken evenly on both sides with the sambal mayo.  


Cook the chicken

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts. Transfer to a plate.

Meanwhile, start preparing the mango and the salad.


Prep the mango; make the kale salad

  • Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit into halves. Thinly slice the halves crosswise. Set aside for serving.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely tear the leaves.

In a large bowl, stir together the Thai ginger dressing base, almond butter, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the kale, carrots, and basil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the kale salad to individual plates, top with the mango and chicken, and serve.
